Do you have Advanced Medical Directives that are tucked away in a safe deposit box that can only be opened by you?  What if you are rushed to the hospital and the family members who make your healthcare decisions live over a thousand miles away?  With today’s technology and the abundance of smart phones in the world, the American Bar Association’s Commission on Law and Aging has created an application (“App”) called “My Health Care Wishes.” 
My Health Care Wishes can be purchased for $3.99 and will transfer your Advanced Medical Directives to whichever hospital or doctor needs it.  Let’s say you are in New York and your daughter, who lives in Hawaii, is your healthcare representative/power of attorney.  You suffer from a medical crisis and are rushed to the hospital.  Your daughter can use the My Health Care Wishes App and your Advanced Medical Directives will be transferred to the hospital where you are located in the blink of an eye.
While technology is making life simpler, keep in mind you will need Advanced Medical Directives in order to use the App.  Call us today to get your Advanced Medical Directives created.
